. >> there's no doubt that under president obama our country is falling into what i'll call a new normal. economic growth, high unemployment, stagnant wages. >> is that the new economy? is that recovery? >> that's the way the economy looked about three months ago. i think that latest news has been significantly better than that. and i would say that it's really a challenge to both parties. i think that democrats and the people have been saying that we have secular stagnation and need a much bigger stimulus and stuck in this new normal, too. i think everybody is ursurprise by the good news. nobody figured out what the political story is. >> i don't think he's wrong that economy remains pretty weak. >> it's not a new normal in my view. >> you think it will get better? >> absolutely. i mean i am -- as convicted as i've ever been about the state of american economy. we have come a long way from righting the wrong that's got us into this mess. american companies are competitive. i can feel confidence coming back. as soon as we do, we're going to get stronger. >> enough talk like this everybod

or that when obama care is terrorizing the country, or when a group backed by billionaires used a creepy uncle sam to try to scare young people not to get insurance. that was offensive, but helping millions of americans get insurance is working, and they can't handle it. joining me now are msnbc's karen finney and abbey huntsman. thank you both for being here. karen, calling a white house event offensive, is the gop really that easily offended? >> no, of course not, but they are that desperate of the i mean, look, we knew we would goat this point where the website would be fixed. i've always concontinueded that i don't even think the website is the right metric as to whether or not the program and the policy is effective, but fine, the rnc got everybody whipped up about that. but now it's fixed. and now it's working. they have nothing else to go on. so of course they have to throw stones at that, and yet, they still don't have an answer for what they're going to do for all those people who are now in the health care system. millions of people, from even before the whole website went online. wh
, whether you're talking about new york city and de blasio or obama and the rest of the country. how much do you as a country or a nation want to offset these much bigger global forces and when do you kill the goose that lays the golden egg. that's the question. >> and you know, no country really does income quality terribly well that i know of. >> sweden, norway. >> some of those social democracies have had less of that. they don't have high-end wealth in the same way that we do here. anyh anyhow, it is an issue. >> it's a consequence of growth. >> inequality can lead to social unrest. >> all right. >> take one thing away sfli don't think we're going to solve it today but to the yahoo! poll and see what you think. here is our question of the day. the president speaking about income inequality. what is the solution? 19% of you say raise the minimum wage. 51% say more tax breaks for the middle class. 17% say raise taxes on the rich. >> surprising. >> and 13% say limit executive pay. sue? >> very interesting. all right. it's getting really cold out there. a cold snap gripping the western half
to the most voted on submissions from young people all across the country. so i think president obama is very committed to starting a conversation that will hopefully get our generation educated on the details which are critical about this law. >> you know, jake, before -- you know we don't get into poll numbers about disapproval rates of obama care among younger people. where do you sense this cynicism, this disinterest in anything that government can do or might be able to do for young people comes from? what's the root of it right now? >> i think we don't put too much stock into one poll or another but generally speaking the climate has been very partisan and with the website issues. it feels like the air is clearing more now and generally speaking one thing that we do know from polls is young people aren't educated about this law. it's our position that if we start a conversation and young people learn more what this law means for us and our generation we can have a meaningful conversation about the law that will get our generation engaged and people will be able to make the decision one
, is the obama care website a hacker's paradise? >>> but first, here's what some of our fox affiliates across the country are covering tonight. kttv in los angeles with the latest on the car crash that killed actor paul walker. autopsy results say he was killed by the combined effects of the impact and subsequent fire. investigators are still trying to determine what caused that car to careen out of control. wsvn in miami with nearly four dozen pilot whales stranded in shallow water in a remote area of florida's everglades national park. ten have already died. workers are trying to coax the remaining whales back into deeper water. >>> and this is a live look at eden prairie, minnesota, from fox 9. the big story there tonight is the storm that has spread about two feet of snow in northeastern minnesota. heavy snow and ice have contributed to hundreds of traffic accidents around that state and were cited in at least four fatal crashes since monday. that's tonight's live look outside the beltway from "special report." we'll be right back. vo: it's that time of year again. medicare open enrollmen
. the youth of this response. this is an incredibly young country where the majority of people have no memory of apartheid. it is something from the history books. it is something that they learn about in school or from their parents, perhaps. but president obama put it incredibly well in that statement earlier. and he used one of nelson mandela's best known phrases when he said i fought against white domination and black domination to say this is not someone who was fighting just against the apartheid regime, but against racism right across the races. he said when he came to power as president in 1994 that he didn't want to push the white man into the sea. and perhaps in part for that reason, that is why he is so adored by people of all races. yes, an icon for black africans, an icon, too, in a different way perhaps for millions of white south africans too. although there is a great deal of criticism the way they've progressed, it is peaceful, it is democratic, and it is stable. and no one in 1994 predicted that. >> all right. well, we're going to have a lot more. thank you, rohit. and we're
angry. i have a quick question for you. i know you have been in this country a long time. >> i called the cops. they're coming in. >> okay. i have a quick question. >> i don't want no questions. >> that was fox's jesse watters tracking down president obama's uncle outside of boston earlier this year. in 2011 omar obama was arrested for drunk driving. it was discovered he was living in the united states illegally. the white house claimed at the time that omar and president obama never had met because reporters were inquiring about the relationship. now they have done a complete 180. trace gallagher has "the kelly file" investigation. >> reporter: in fact, when the president's uncle omar was arrested for drunk driving not only did we learn he was here illegally but that he was related to the president. in fact he was asked if he would like to make a phone call. he said, i think i will call the white house. the white house told the boston globe there was no record of the president meeting his uncle omar. this week in the boston immigration court omar obama testified not only had he met h
do? no one wants to live off the bear minimum. but there is a support system in this country that is very important to the stability of society. earlier today, president obama slammed the idea of dependency, and stuck up for the hard-working people on government assistance with low wages. >> these programs are not typically hammocks for people to just lie back and relax. these programs are almost always temporary means for hard-working people to stay afloat while they try to find a new job. or going to school to retrain themselves for the jobs that are out there. or sometimes just to cope with a bout of bad luck. >> who do you think is telling the truth? o'reilly or the president of the united states? you be the judge. meanwhile, there is rush limbaugh. he knows a thing or two about drug addiction. limbaugh is also wasting air time attacking poor people on food stamps this holiday season. he said food stamps are making poor people obese. >> most of the childhood obesity is minority. african-american and this story links it to food stamps! which makes total sense. we've got ne

, a report that a majority of california doctors, as many as 70%, are staying off the state's obama care exchange because they can't afford to participate. that simple. and obama care, listen to this, it's offering medicaid reimbursement rates. look, around the country a medicare pays $76 for a return patient visit. that's medicare around the country. in california, these medicaid rates would mean $24 for a visit. would you practice medicine with those kinds of numbers? here now to discuss is democratic strategist chris kofin kofinis, mike slater out of san diego, california, where we all wish we would be. mike slater, let me go to you first. the way california is doing this, they're treating doctors like medicaid surfs. so therefore, no pay, no play. that's simple enough for me. is that the story? >> so glad you used that word. doctors are treated like servants and not like traders of services. i come to you from inside the crystal ball and every doctor i've talked to in california says this is a disaster for patients and for them. everyone was so focused on health insurance, no one eve
's polarized. the country is polarized. barak obama, however, has made it worse. >> in what way? >> i think he's a partisan. he's an ideological partisan and we see it on everything. obamacare being the biggest example where no republican ideas, no republican votes. only straight party line vote. you see it with the senate changing the rules to limit republican power. he's all for that. so this is a president who talks about uniting the country, but when push comes to shove, he only chooses one side of every argument and therefore, the country is more divided as a result of his presidency than it was before. >> i can't tell you how many times i've heard people say, it seems like he's pitting one part of america against the other. you would hate to think that's true, but you look at the evidence and it does suggest that. >> look, it's red against blue, of course, but class warfare as well. it's about the wealthy -- he clearly has a chip on his shoulder about wealth. he doesn't mind taking wealthy people's money for his own campaign, but you get a sense he's really -- he really does not like wea
